Middle School Knowledge Bowl

Coaches Charles Miller, Dan Stark and Jen Daiker

Last Monday was our Middle School home meet, playing host to over 300 kids on 60 different teams. Our team did a great job! The Prep kids were kind, showed cooperation, and good sportsmanship. They were also great on the buzzers! Grades 7/8 finished in 1st, 4th, 5th, and 8th. 6th graders rocked as well, finishing in 2nd, 3rd (ONE POINT AWAY FROM 1ST!) and 10th. It was a great meet, and we are off to a strong start!

The coaches would like to thank all the parents who helped out at the meet. Visiting coaches raved about the food, the pizza sales ran smoothly, and we were cleaned up in record time for a meet that size. Seriously…thank you so much. It was truly a blessing to have you all there. 

 Up next for the team is a meet at North Middle school on Monday, November 6th and Sartell Middle School on Monday, November 13th.
